Afghan-American Women Association (A-AWA) in Washington, DC Issues Statement on U.S.-Taliban Peace Agreement "Responsible Withdrawal from Afghanistan"

WASHINGTON, March 9, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Afghan-American Association (A-AWA), an Afghan-led NGO in the Washington DC area, in consultation with the Afghan Women's Education Center (AWEC ? based in Afghanistan) and the Afghan Women's Network (AWN ? representing around 125 women groups in Afghanistan), welcome the peace agreement between the United States and Taliban leadership with hopes for an enduring peace and prosperous future for the Afghan people.

While this agreement could represent a viable beginning towards peace in Afghanistan through its facilitation of intra-Afghan talks, it also raises significant concerns.

History shows us that a peace deal that divvies up power and resources between political strongmen, the Taliban, and the warlords will fail. To repeat this same mistake is folly. The United States and the international community did not sacrifice their military forces and families, to say nothing of trillions of taxpayer dollars, for a rushed deal that abandons an aspiring democracy for reasons of political expediency.

The following are our recommendations for how the United States, NATO and the international community can strengthen implementation of the U.S.-Taliban agreement and lay a foundation for effective intra-Afghan talks.

Afghan-American Women's Association (http://www.A-AWA.org) is a volunteer-based 501(c) nonprofit organization founded in 2009 with the mission to improve the status and well-being of Afghan-American women through personal support, educational opportunities and professional growth.
